Worldwide Supply Chain Planning Applications Market Shares, 2021: Planning Resiliency
This IDC study provides the worldwide market shares for supply chain planning applications. This market grew nicely in 2021, paced by accelerating investment in public cloud deployments. Growth in the supply chain planning applications market continues to be driven by the historical need for omni-channel "buy anywhere, fulfill anywhere" processes, but it is also being driven by the need for digital competencies to allow the supply chain to pivot to new business models and seize on new opportunities.
"The importance of the supply chain in an inherently disruptive world is critical for businesses to meet their performance targets. Without the use of modern supply chain planning tools, supply chains simply cannot compete at the levels necessary for competitive differentiation. Supply chain planning investments are both a competitive necessity and key to driving a differentiating edge over peers," says Eric Thompson, program director, Global Supply Chain Planning Strategies.
